Here they are post-shrink, hanging out to dry...
Aren't they lovely? Still a bit in need of ironing, but that's what I shall go off and do as soon as I have posted this.
Left to right they are Sandi Henderson's Peony Plaid in Limeade from her Meadowsweet collection, Laura Gunn's Poppy Silhouette in Olive from her Poppy collection, and Anna Maria Horner's Baby Bouquet in Meadow from her Little Folks range.
I got a couple of little samples of the first two a while back and thought they would be perfect for one of the Simplicity 2599 tops that I was burbling on about the other day, and the Baby Bouquet came along with them because I am shamelessly going to copy Ashley at Film in the Fridge and make a (possibly Shearwater) tunic out if it. This is my first lot of Anna Maria Horner voile, and so far it definitely lives up to the hype; very fine and smooth to the touch. I think I will even treat it and the Elna to a new needle!
And following the (muslin) muslin tunic trauma, I am going to save it until I have found a tunic pattern that works on me. I think the next pattern to try is a variation of the Burda wedding dress with (surprise, surprise) some Bomull cotton.
I'll let you know how it goes...
Oh and by the way, if you've arrived here from Sew, Mama, Sew's May Giveaway Day, hello and welcome! You'll find all the Giveaway info and comments here.
